Bible Basics
The Bible is the most important book any Catholic can own. What other book brings us the word of God?

Bible Basics
The Bible is the most important book any Catholic can own. What other book brings us the word of God?

With 73 books and more than 1600 pages, many Catholics find the Bible overwhelming, confusing, and even boring. Does this sound like you? Don't be afraid, you're not alone! Many people struggle to read the Bible because they have never been taught how to read it.

Join Br. Casey for an interesting and engaging look at the history, literature, theology and social aspects of the whole Bible. Br. Casey will use videos, pictures, activities, and even humor to give every parishioner, young and old, the confidence to read the Bible on a regular basis. Classes will meet on Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm in the St. Catherine Room, beginning on June 3rd and running through July 15th.

What does it mean to be Catholic?

Br. Casey will be addressing these topics and more on Sunday afternoons at 3:30 pm in the St. Catherine Room, beginning on June 7th and running through July 19th.
